The Bourne Objective: Book Review & Giveaway

About The Book:

Facing down mercenaries in Africa, Jason Bourne witnesses the death of an art dealer named Tracy Atherton. Her killing dredges up snatches of Bourne's impaired memory, in particular the murder of a young woman on Bali who entrusted him with a strangely engraved ring­­-an artifact of such powerful significance that people have killed to obtain it. Now he's determined to find the ring's owner and purpose. But Bourne never knows what terrible acts he'll discover he committed when he digs into the past.

My Review:

I have been a fan of the Bourne movies starring Matt Damon for a long time now, but can honestly say that I had yet to read any of the books associated with them. That has now changed.

The Bourne Objective was an action packed conspiracy theory novel that will have you guessing until the very end. It is well written, and had me on the edge of my chair the entire time! My only frustration is that I was not familiar with the other novels and when references were made to past events, I was a bit confused. In my opinion, I probably should not have read this book first, but started with earlier ones. However, that does not take away from my impression that this was a great read! If you have been a fan of the older Bourne novels by Ludlum and now the newer ones by Lustbader, you will thoroughly enjoy The Bourne Objective.

I highly recommend this book and give it a thumbs up.
